Lady Gaga honours bullied gay teen fan in tribute song
Washington: Pop sensation Lady Gaga has dedicated her song ‘Hair’ to the young fan who committed suicide after he was bullied for his sexuality for years.
Jamey Rodemeyer, 14, took his own life on September 18 after months of harassment by cyber bullies on social media sites, while he was asking for help with his sexuality on these sites.
Gaga, 25, had previously launched a campaign to make bullying illegal after the death of Rodemeyer and now she has paid a tribute to the young fan during her performance at the iHeartRadio music festival in Las Vegas last weekend.
“I lost a little monster this week and I’d like to dedicate this song to him. Tonight, Jamey I know you’re up there and looking at us and you’re not a victim. Bullying is for losers. Put your hands up for Jamey!” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
Rodemeyer was a big fan of the singer and sent her a message on Twitter saying “Bye mother monster, thank you for all you have done, paws up forever”, before he killed himself.
